Have you ever had a decorating problem that you just couldn't figure out?
You've scratched your head over and over and you just can't seem to find an answer to? The problem is baffling and the space just bothers you every day?
You walk around in your home feeling like this....
And the problem is:
A room that has an awkward shape and you have difficulty arranging the furniture...
A wall with a light switch right in the middle of it and you need to place a big piece of furniture there....
A kitchen with a bazillion midtoned wood cabinets and a forest green wall color that needs updating?
Wow! That last one is MY problem!!
...and more wood! (and check out these flowery pendant lights...wow!)
....and 'unique' gold and brown metallic Aztec/Sante Fe accent tiles in the backsplash:
So what's a girl to do when she has a major decorating problem like this? Usually she ask her friends/family, asks her husband (or not!), asks her awesome blog/facebook followers (that part's coming!) or ....asks the True Value Facebook Blog Squad!!
So I buckled my seatbelt and asked Kate this question:
Hi Kate!! This is a 3 part question! 1. I was wondering if you could give me a paint color suggestion for my kitchen walls...I just moved and I love my home but my kitchen is a 'wall of wood'!! Lots of mid-toned birch wood cabinets in a 'hazelnut' stain (looks like a caramel brown colored stain)...they are really good quality cabinets and we won't be replacing them soon, but I need to paint the walls to make the space more up to date (walls are currently forest green color). I was thinking of maybe grey, but not sure if that would compliment the caramel brown hazelnut stained cabinetry or not, and not sure if a lighter grey or darker grey would be the answer. Do you have any wall paint color suggestions? (The floors and backsplash are a beige tile) 2. I would also like to redo the backsplash (4 inch square beige tiles)...is there anything I could put on top of the current tile backsplash to cover it or would we have to remove the tile first? I also have a mid toned wood kitchen pedestle table with 6 wheat sheaf chairs, should I stain them a walnut/espresso brown color or paint them white/off-white? Thanks for your help!
